Love Is

Love is... The sweet scent of roses in bloom The smell of new mown hay The freshness of a morning in June A bright and sun filled day Love is... The delicate trill of a mockingbird The softness of a gentle touch Rivulets of rain running down your cheek A loved one who means so much Love is... A whisper, a glance, a gentle caress Loving and tender sighs Thoughtful words of sweet adoration A look of passion in your eyes Love is... An accumulation of all of the above And perhaps a few I've missed The feeling of love is easily recognized Sealed with a warm gentle kiss! © Jack Ellison 2012
